PROPOSAL OF THE NEW JERSEY STATE BAR ASSOCIATION RESPECTING PREROGATIVE WRITS

(Presented June 24, 1947

The New Jersey State Bar Association proposes that a provision in substantially the following form be inserted in the 1947 Constitution:

"Any relief or remedy now afforded by the writs of certiorari, mandamus, quo warranto, prohibition and proceedings in the nature thereof, shall be afforded in such action, in such courts, under such practice and procedure, and subject to such rights, limitations and other provisions respecting trial by jury, appeals, and other matters as may be established by law. Any such relief or remedy may be made a matter of right, when so provided by law."

A more detailed memorandum in support of the foregoing will be presented.

Respectfully submitted,Herbert J. Hannoch, Chairman For the Prerogative Writ Committee.
